Driver For Burglars Shot By Detroit Homeowner, Dies After Crash

Burglars in Detroit obviously aren't watching or reading the local news. Everyone here should know by now that you should not be breaking into people's houses because homeowners are striking back.

Last night in the Rosedale Park neighborhood, a trio of would-be burglars staked out a home in the area. Two attempted to break in while one sat in a getaway car.

The owner of the home fired shots at the three men; the getaway driver was hit. While the two who broke into the home got away on foot, the driver crashed the car into a nearby house and later died.

It's the latest in an uptick of homeowner-shooting-burglar incidents in the city; seven have been shot this year alone, four of which occurred in the last month and a half.
